MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 19, 2013

In a time crunch, I used prepackaged gingersnap cookies but made the frosting as stated. I got so many raves for this dessert when I paired it with a bbq luncheon. The frosting was not runny and kept it's shape. Instead of spreading the frosting on the top of the cookies, I dipped half the cookie from the side and put two on a dessert plate. The added lemon zest gave the wow factor. I plan on making the cookies from the recipe next time.
